Saying for Writers #148 - Jean Kerr

A Quote which Might (or Might Not) Inspire You to Write:

"Confronted by an absolutely infuriating review it is sometimes helpful for the victim to do a little personal research on the critic. Is there any truth to the rumor that he had no formal education beyond the age of eleven? In any event, is he able to construct a simple English sentence? Do his participles dangle? When moved to lyricism does he write 'I had a fun time'? Was he ever arrested for burglary? I don't know that you will prove anything this way, but it is perfectly harmless and quite soothing." – Jean Kerr

A soothing photo of snow on branches snapped somewhere in northwest Montana by local friend Sue Haugan. Hang this where it can be seen from your bathtub. After receiving a horrible review, pour yourself a glass of wine and climb in the tub for a long, hot soak.
